Tofu Shirataki Salad (Gluten free Cold Noodle Salad)
Long time no write. I've been having stomach issues for about two months after an unfortunate incident with a hot dog (never eating those again). I've been living off of mochi and pureed vegetable soup so I haven't been very adventurous with my cooking lately. I also decided that I was going to p...

BAM 31: Nasu no Tuskemono (Fast and Easy), Turkey Hijiki Niku Dango (Meat Ball), Negitama (Egg and green onion) Miso Soup and Rice

This BAM is comprised of: Nasu no Tuskemono (Fast and Easy), Turkey Hijiki Niku Dang...

Myoga and Red Potato Vegan Miso Soup
This is the conclusion recipe for BAM 25. This miso soup was a bit of a challenge because I didn't want to sacrifice flavor. Myoga is so fragrant and it's a wonderful compliment to miso. If you can't get myoga, a tiny bit of grated ginger will also add tons of flavor. Leave the skin on the red po...

Lemon Daikon
This recipe is originally intended for yuzu but it's a little hard to come by in the US so I decided to use lemon since I had a bunch of freshly picked lemons on hand. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out because yuzu daikon is one of my favorite sunomono (pickled in vinegar) dishes but I w...

Ingen (Green bean) Goma-miso Ae
Vegetable ae (ah-eh) dishes are common in Japanese cuisine. SeeCreamy Zesty Lemon Broccoli Ae andBeet leaf Peanut Miso Ae. Both of these are not very traditional Japanese ae dishes but Ingen no goma-miso ae is one that pops up in my mind as a classic vegetable ae dish. Whenever my mom and I mad...

Kabocha Dango with Tsubuan (Red bean)
Last summer I went to my mom's friend's house in Otaru. She has a house on a hill with spectacular views of the ocean. She prepared us a lunch on her patio that consisted of imo mochi (potato paddies which are a Hokkaido specialty dish), corn and a few other Hokkaido delicacies. The imo mochi was...

Potatoes with Sage tempura
My mom whipped up this recipe one day after gardening for a few hours. I could tell she wanted something hearty and flavorful after slaving away under the hot sun. It was summer and her herbs were growing happily after nearly a 7-month winter. My parents live in Hokkaido, also known as "Snow Coun...
